    Only as the biggest shameless attempt at commercialized sell out gone bust.
    Shit like Youtube and Google doesn't belong on this list they did not invent or make the internet better, they are charged with fucking it up and turning it into nothing but a delivery system for porn and stupid retarded video shit like Kony 2012 and Thatguywithglasses.

    None of these people fucking matter, only Al Gore is the most well known and he has been shat out of the anus of public knowledge long ago, and completely forgotten like William Shatner.

    If it isn't Steve Jobs and Apple being listed for all the innovations and designing and starting the internet, nobody will care.
    Nobody gives a fuck about the people who made it possible, they only care about the person who is best at pretending he is/was important when really his value was grossly overestimated and when boiled down to it, the achievements were pretty much flukey shit involving using white gloss and idiots attraction to shiny things.

    I don't think we deserve a spot. At our ever historical peak we got 100,000 hits a day. Twitter loses more pageviews to ROUNDING errors. Are we REALLY noteworthy compared to cheezeburger, kym, twitter, facebook, blogspot, metacritic. Hell, there are websites 300 times as popular that don't merit a site.

    just because we don't have many people interacting with our site directly doesn't mean we're not important.
    the INDIRECT effects of this site are far larger.

    but still, I think Moot would be listed WAY before us.

    Larry Page and Sergey Brin will be in.


    I wonder who's going to take the social networking spot: Mark Zuckerburg or Tom Anderson.
